The inaugural edition of Art Wynwood opened last night and featured some arresting work to celebrate President's Day weekend.

In the newbie fair's Art Video New Media Lounge, housing 11 works in eight screening rooms, Lindsay Scoggins ranked in at number one with a bullet, with videos in which she created twitchy, chronological works revisiting Reagan's attempted assassination and Kennedy's assassination in eerie fashion.

The compelling collection of videos on display in the section were curated and presented by Grela Orihuela of Miami's Wet Heat Project and also featured works by Monika Bravo, David Antonio Cruz, Teresa Diehl, Guerra de la Paz, Rivane Neueshwander, and others.

Art Wynwood had plenty of gritty offerings on view that included a silicone Damien Hirst blowing his brains out and old school dance hall strumpets ready to kick your teeth out.

Check out some of the works that had the huge crowds abuzz early after the jump.
